Iconic Characters
« on: October 02, 2008, 09:33:40 pm »



Iconic Characters

I’ve reserved this space for write-ups of our three Iconic Characters, which are the reoccurring subjects of the illustrations in the Bounty Head Bebop rulebook.

Right now, we’re not even sure about their Names or Archetypes – though I think they’ll each be written up on a 20 XP Build.

Here’s what I got so far – though if there’s anyone out there with another opinion, feel free to post it here.

Names
Hot Chick – Lilly Swann
Guy With Lid – Isaac Hammer
Guy With Beer – Mark Storm, AKA ‘Sideburns’

Archetypes
Hot Chick – Private Investigator/Hacker
Guy With Lid – Ship’s Pilot/Gearhead
Guy With Beer – Bounty Hunter

Well, there they are - and only a tad more than 20 XP.

As of now I'm still working on equipment, but will have that in a day or so.

Questions or comments, post 'em here  :)

Not bad, but we'd have to drop 'the' and just go with 'Brothers Keeper'  ;)

The Gertrude works. He's obviously a space trucker (I mean look at him), and every good trucker has to name their baby (Their ship) a woman's name. Records say 'The Gertrude' but he calls her Gertrude.

Fighter being called banshee seems a bit iffy, depending on the model of it. If it's imposing and scary, it works, or if the pilot/owner is full of himself and thinks that it's imposing or scary, and it's really quick, perhaps with some sonic emitance from it's engines or it's blasters, Banshee works.

I'd use something like the Hawk or Raptor, though.

Hi Warr – Welcome and thanks for your input :)

See, I totally agree with you on the ‘Gertrude’ thing – I mean like you say, it seems to fit the character – And he probably would even just call it ‘Gertie’ for short.

As for the fighter, I sort of figured that maybe it was called the ‘Banshee’ because it was loud as hell or the engine whined in a unique sort of way when it flew.

Hawk and Raptor are good suggestions to – Just need to add something to the front or back perhaps, to make it more its own thing – Nebula Hawk, Raptor Eclipse, etc…

You could always go with the 'Banshee Hawk', and yeah with that bit of information included (It'd be a good bit to include), it'd make sense to call it a Banshee. Not really because it was forecasting enemies death, but more a sarcastic statement by the pilot.

Notes
Louis le Foom is a somewhat intellectual and detached individual, with no family or anyone he can really get close to.  He values his privacy and feels that others can’t relate to him anyway, so he tends to avoid purely social gatherings.

He was once an up and coming surgeon, until his psychic powers unexpectedly manifested in the middle of a surgery and drove him temporarily mad.  Since the embarrassing dismissal and loss of his medical license, Louis has taken to performing illegal street surgery for many of the bounty hunters and criminals alike that pass through his home city.

Hmm, it looks like Issac Hammer is Jewish. Or at least Israeli.
